Olivier de Sagazan is a painter and sculptor, but he sees himself, above all, as a performer, a virus that must parasitize the brain of others. His art is close of being his reason to live, the aim of life is to be constantly in confrontation with the real, to question it in order to understand it. His performance and his body transformations are then like a suspended moment, an act of surrealist improv, through which an indescribable form of beauty is made manifest.
Olivier de Sagazan est un artiste peintre et sculpteur mais se voit avant tout comme un performer, un virus qui doit parasiter le cerveau des autres. Son art est proche du vivant car pour lui, le but de la vie est d’être constamment en confrontation avec le réel, le questionner pour tenter de le comprendre. Sa performance et ses transformations corporelles sont donc comme un moment suspendu, un acte d’improvisation surréaliste, au travers duquel se manifeste une forme de beauté indescriptible. (via)
